with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is unacceptable behavior, and i am often fearful when we try to develop a black letter law if you have all these factors and bullying and you fell outside and that works okay in the courtroom. right? as prosecutors we need clear understanding of the laws to understand whether we have a criminal violation or not, but i am fearful we maybe overly legalistic and the way we deal with on a daily basis and we need to approach this by a global perspective respecting people and understanding we have the same rights and obligations and starting with the adults and i go back to the adults because the adults really have to tow the line here. they really have to walk the talk. i cannot tell you how often i of involved in large mentoring efforts and now in two different places, in l.a. and arizona. i cannot tell you how often the teachers are the ones that set the tone whether we have a respectable environment or and
who we are as we're trying to recruit people. he want to know what the board of education plans are to promote the b cc as you're looking to help us be a positive part of the team working with english language are learners along with pack we want to them to know how the promotion of the b cc as well as the teaching to continue to promote the b cc. i know we're on the we are talking about and posting our agenda and what else can we do it promote the b cc. we'd a lot of the board members to come and some folks have come and we've changed our meetings so i think there was a conflict with one thought i think it was one of your subcommittee meetings and we can be flexible and is if there's another conflict while try to resolve those. we courage the b o e commissioners to regularly check in with our appointees. but it would be great if you regularly check in with the people you've appointed to keep a finger other than the pulse of the b cc. number 2 we instructional with timely translations. it's our right and responsibility to ask for translations as better can be asking for translat
throughout the country. education was the gateway. access to education would provide a better future for the children. today that belief remains the same. education is a pathway for future success. however access to high quality education still remains an illusions to many children. too many african american and other people of color remain segregated in other schools and determined desperate and in later life. a huge gap in problems across the country. add to that the concept of unconscious bias, low expectations and high expulsion and suspension rates and it's so many reasons why they fall below the bar. even in san francisco where we have the highest performing schools we have the highest achievement gap among african american and latino students. we need to invest more in the future of our young people. in 1964, dr. king said, the richest nation on earth has never allocated sufficient schools to allocate teachers. we squander funds on highways, on the pursuit of recreation, on the over abundance of over kill arm meant but we pop rise education. even those these words were 50 year
was also nominated by president obama to serve in her role as assistant secretary of education for civil rights and she was confirmed by the senate in may of 2009. as assistant secretary, ruslyn is assistant secretary arnie's duncan's primary advisor. before she joined the department of education she was vice president of the education trust in washington, dc and was the founding executive of education trust west in oakland. in these positions she advocated for public school students in california, focusing on achievement and opportunity gaps, improving can urriculum and instructional quality and ensuring quality education for everybody. she served as an advisor on education issues on a number of private ipbs institutions, she is a teacher, a lawyer, and a very influential voice on all policy matters. she was also passionate about ending this issue of bullying and bringing everyone together to stop this disturbing trend so please welcome assistant secretary for civil rights, ruslyn lee. as i said, our moderator is not always our lieutenant governor, of course he needs to introducti
their curious about it they can prototype it and there's a lot of educates out there you don't have to have moifldz dollars so all the tools to make that possible is at the core of what the maker movement is for me. so with respect to our company when i'm talking to the fcc about getting our licenses to communities with satellites in space we're a solid company not like a maker company but internally we're occurring we're full of engineers and scientists that have tools at the their disposal. so i think we would self-identify internally as markers. >> beware i think he's posed to answer this so chris has the title for his next book (laughter). >> the nature come punctuation. >> he has a book and if the employees know what's good for them it's next door. other questions from the audience, please. there's a microphone right there >> so we kind of all noticed how america communes 25 percent of the workforce whatever. i'm curious how you guys think about the maker movement whatever is effecting the way people consume and what's the introductory of how the maker movement is going and a can i
educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willing it slow down enough to invite kids to sit down at the table with us and partner? do we have the courage to understand that inclusion takes time and we have have to work more diligently to i invite young people, particularly marginalized young people, to take part. >> you menti
a trump card. educational equity is still an unmet promise. bullying of lgbt in schools still needs to be cared for. immigration reform for undocumented workers who are making this country strong. i look forward to working with everyone here tonight to make all of those dreams come true. thank you very much. [ applause ] >> our next awardee is the homeless prenatal program. the homeless prenatal program is honored to present this award on behalf of 500 low income families who have a chance to dream about a better future for their children and determination to make that dream a reality. we accept this award on behalf of it's staff. many of whom are clients through tireless work. we have come a long way from the march on washington and we have a long way left to go. since 1963, a structural injustice remains. the poverty unjustly reflects the poverty and instability of our color. htp is committed to challenging these disparities by providing critical health and social services not only to seek as safety net but also empower families, with affordable housing and education and job train
involved in education. he used to be the police chief. now he is the district attorney, gascon. he had an idea about a junior academy that would take san francisco eans and give them skills to get into the academy. you can make a great living as a police officer. the same notion with the fire department. these are careers you don't normally think about when you are in high school. you often are relegated to a path to go to a four-year university. that is not for everyone. there is an opportunity for everyone to work. that is the main point i am trying to drive home. when we talk about the issues, the one that stands out for me is education, economic and work force of the element, stimulating the local economy. we have the third street merchant corridor and an opportunity to revitalize what i consider to be the main artery of the bayview district, of the southeast quarter. third street is a pretty long streak. from at&t park, it goes all the way to candlestick park. there is a lot of opportunity. don't squander that. we wanted to be a healthy mix that reflects the cultural history of th
transforming our education system as described as struggling in the past with a lot of different barriers and opening up to our effort to involve a larger picture of what our residents and their families really want to do in the great city of san francisco and how do we attract those families to stay here. i go to technology visits every tech tour tuesday and meet with thirty or 40 employees of those companies and many of them know their ipos won't come in like other families they want to be here and work in jobs by the first thing is what are we doing that the schools. that's the birthing sign of viechltd. the best investment is to create a family here because that means you've got fabricate in the way we've treated our schools and the private-public partnering we have. in addition the technology gap that sales force is helping us today with offer $1.7 million in the other person ipads and the tinge goes with it is the training of features tea administrators. that's similar to what auto deck zinc gesture offers. it's the support mechanisms. it's one thing to announce the gift bus it's th
the country. because the data shared by our u.s. attorney, representatives from the department of education confirm if we don't do anything about it, 13 million kids will become victims again for another year. some 3 million kids across the country will decide it is better to leave their school grounds than to continue their education. there will be more stupblting of the emotional and educational growth of our kids. all across the bay, whether working here in san francisco or alameda or sonoma or santa clara county. i want to thank you law enforcement officials here, instructors, community advocates, people who are concerned about our kids, they are our future and i would love to see a new generation of kids who don't know what bully is, who are not victims, who don't have those scars. but we've got to do today is sharing in the best practices, to be encouraged by programs like our roof top school here in san francisco who has traded a 50-person ambassador class that will talk about this, that will invite other kids, school administrators who have received the support of our school site
about college education. >> to start your life 80 grand in the hole with your art history major or mid-eastern studies and not finding work, that's why you have to -- >> for that, he is supposed to be the mad one. that's for starters and sets the record straight live on this very show. return to the great sinkhole, one of my favorite guests. we will begin with the big story. obama care fiasco and the president apologized. everyone is apologizing and while secretary sebelius was apologizing and talking about the disaster, the health care website he was apologizing about was crashing. it was almost comical. the president took aim at republicans for trying to destroy his law. >> health care is complicated and very personal. it's easy to scare folks. and it's no surprise that some of the same folks trying to scare people now are the same folks who have been trying to sink the affordable care act from the beginning. >> joining me now is the chairman of the republican national committee. you guys have gone from being the villains to suddenly the heroes. how on earth did this happen? >> it's
been around for about 32 years. we're nonprofit and we do both education and advocacy and on the education end we develop be curriculum and the curriculum is used widely across the country. it's in every state in the country and in canada and 70 countries around the world and programs we're familiar with is second step and i am hearing some nods and we have a -- idea of kind of what kind of things that we do, and i also do advocacy work so i come and speak at meetings like this. i was at the attorney general's meeting in washington state and i would like to congratulate you and especially those in law enforcement in california for the high level of discourse that you have incredibly impressed today by what i have heard and my hats off to you for all the good work you're doing. so i do advocacy and part of that is kind of reaching out to people and bringing the message of social emotional learning not just to schools because educators kind of get it. it's not a stretch when we talk to them why it's important to get it, but we want to take the message outside of the s
bringing the film and educating, training professional development largely thriewr our partnership with them and provides that to school districts and classrooms across the country for free, so educators can sign up, and if they agree to do the training and to take it seriously and embed it with the kids and the adults in the community we provide them with oftentimes busing, but often free tickets so they can see the film outside of school and make it an event and that is our project "1 million kids". we're doing it in a big way here in the bay area thanks to the leadership in this community. yep and oakland and all over. it's just awesome and in cleveland and right now we have 13,000 students across the basin in salt lake city are seeing it, and does have impact and the impact is largely i would say it creates a sense of agreement. the biggest thing that bully does or the big service the film has is gives everyone a unified collective science of agreement to which they roll up the sleeves and get busy creating change and has been really exciting. i building we already i belie
the educational system. we are still experiencing digital divide and access and just the one you speak of recently officer when you mention the generations and investigators not engaged with this media and no don't know my book or face space and when you have to look at youth culture. we talk about texting and sexing and omg and i didn't text anything to you. i spoke to and part of the language and how they engage so until we look at the culture of young people and how do we impact today's 20th century media culture we can't make a huge impact in regards to bullying or electronic aggression or whatever name we want to place on it and is affecting the students and i am excited you're addressing this issue and it's a crucial time for this generation and if we don't take serious this conversation today and action tomorrow we will see more and more issues arise. [applause] >> and i'm going to cap it up and i totally agree with that and one of the resources i want you to point is out is the family institute on line and platform for good a couple days ago. anne was there for the launch in
will now move on to item t the closed session action for the meeting the board of education approved the contract for one intifrm principle and one administrator. the board of education approved a minor modification of the schools contract with distribution to redraft the contract to include that modification. in the matter of g l vs. the unified school district case no. 80862 the board of education gives the authority of the district to pay up to the stipulated amount. wait a minute this is the vote total can't be correct and i also did not vote on that item you need to look at the vote totals again. so we may need to read this anti. can we clarify that before the at the end of this meeting. in the existing litigation meeting vs. the unified school district san francisco supreme court the board of education approved by the a vote of 5 yeses and settlement prudent to the district will resend a educational benefit allow the employee to retroactively resign and pay the employee the sum of 5 hundreds as a petition for a writ of men and women democrat and all possible claims against the
justice and people say "that's san francisco" and we believe that a right to a education is i social justice issue and if you deny that you're denying their civil rights. that's how we feel about being proactive. now there is a line of demarcation happens and we want to be proactive i know jill is looking at me. when the event happens and there is harm that occurs we believe in restorative practices and repairing the harm. we don't believe in kicks kids out of school. that's not a solution. we are an educational institution. we go through this process and the perpetrator understands the damage and make it right to the victim. it's not okay shake hands. it's a whole process. you talk about it and process what is happening and people follow up on that, so we very much believe in this restorative process in san francisco and how do we know? because of the indicators that should be going up are going up and the others are going down. our truancies are down. suspensions are down and students in class is going up. thank you for being here. [applause] >> okay. that's okay. you ju
, the national park service has not addressed the issue of civilian signage, education, reciprocity of enforcement of managing issues. the preferred alternative overly restrictive given that the national park service has not taken intermediate steps to educate the public and users about what is required for coexistence. in addition, reciprocal enforcement of animal welfare laws provide additional alternatives to these restrictions. primer example that i would raise is with the dog charlie that attacked the national park service police course last year . that was a situation where there were claims people did not know horses came through there. and so signage would have been one area that would've been helpful and educational to prevent such an event from happening. in addition, it was the city's vicious and dangerous dog unit of the police department that help hearing about that dog and was involved in enforcement issues around it so there's room for reciprocity of enforcement as well. accordingly adaptive management plan might include signs, [inaudible] enforcement of these rules o
of low income students in the program. therefore be it resolved that the board of education requests the superintendant to explore developing a plan for all students to finish or eat their breakfast at the beginning of the school day and we have one speaker ms. signing solomon you have 2 minutes >> thank you susan exclusive vice president. i think this is a great idea. it will help you never skip breakfast as some of you know. i taught kindergarten and this is helpful. some extra assistance in keeping the classrooms clean would help and teachers are keeping food in their classrooms and they get problems with rod dents. and having the correct complainers so if there can be some way of making sure everyone gets some help in the classrooms for keeping it clean. and at the for this resolution >> thank you, ms. solomon. >> i neglected to call on ms. o'keef any comments you want to make about this request before we move into any discussion. >> thank ou good evening. no, just to say we're excitedblast about this resolution and we look forward to working with the staff and our union partn
you for the opportunity i'm the coordinator the education support. i would like to begin by appreciating all of you who carefully reviewed our petition. we have grateful we had the opportunity to serve a difference group of students in the wonderful city of santa fe san francisco. we continue support all our students this year is an exciting time for public education with the recommendation of the impending role out. we've been provided great opportunities. the local funding formula will allow us greater responsibility to make sure we're providing technically rich education. at the chapter school we're excited to prepare the citizens for the 21st century. the arts and curriculum we foster the learning and innovation schools. please accept our warm invitation to come and visit our city hall school and see all the wonderful learning experiences each and every day >> hi, i'm here to support the charter reluctant. i'm a parent of 3. i have a second and sixth grader and one csa graduate who is successful at the school of the arts. i'm a board member and want to say a few word
. >>> when he tells glen beck about college education. >> to start your life 150 grand in the hole, 80 grand in the hole with your art history major or polly or mideast earn studies and not find work -- that's why you got a trillion dollars in debt. >> and for that, apparently, he's supposed to be the mad one. anyway, that's just for starters. mike sets the record straight live on this very show and also, the return of the great arsen yol hall. the great man is back wearing one of the coolest hats i think i've ever seen in my entire life. >>> they are eating my grapes. wait, wait, those are my grapes. the big story, the i'm sorry tour for the obama care fiasco. the president apologized and joe biden and sebelius, everyone apologizing but while secretary sebelius was apologizing, she was talking about the rollout disaster, of course, the health care website she was apologizing about was crashing, almost comical. at the same time the president came at the republicans for trying to destroy his law. >> health care is complicated and very personal and easy to scare folks, and it's no surprise tha
people, people that have blue- collar jobs. really, it is paramount and centered on education. for young people, making sure, ensuring we are providing them a quality education in public schools. i served as chair on the select committee, a committee between the members of the board of supervisors and members on the school board, coming together to address the challenges. in this particular case, we are talking about education. we are talking about a working- class community, the excelsior, the bayview, all of these different neighborhoods are smaller enclaves. we still see the same kinds of challenges. when the schools begin to perform a stellar academic programs, businesses will continue to relocate because the employees will want to live in san francisco and want kids to be educated here. it is a cyclical and symbiotic creation ship. another challenges that we have the highest unemployment rate in this part of san francisco. san francisco before, the numbers are starting to come down a little bit. we have high rates in the latter part of last year, but it is starting to -- it is start
. the other thing that we are moving towards in education is more digital. we'll see less textbooks and more digital learning and with that we are promoting a digital literacy policy which deals with a number of issues and i'm going to go back and look at the draft policy to see how well it deals with the kind of issues rob and your family have dealt with in terms of using the internet safely and being aware of the harm you can do to yourself and to others by the way digital news can get around. >> assemblyman. >> thank you very much. i'm very, very heartened. this was an issue that's been in the closet for too long. i think high profile nationally now as well and we have super stars involved, lady gaga, myself, but you got to reach young people. usually peers are the best, i think, in terms of communicating things and then absolutely the parents. let's keep working, i'm only as good as the information i have and so we want to do the most effective long-lasting legislation. you know what happens sometimes, something is written in law but the attitudes don't change. so that is the human
access to workshops. as people are being to innovative in the education spaces putting c and c tools into the hands of younger and young people make them more easily available there needs to be a nature progression and people need to see facilities like tech spop shop more used than a gym basically >> on a serious note i would probably try to focus on education. that's something that's all mentioned now a father of two i'm not a father of anybody yet by that's a serious problem people move out of the cities when they have children. with respect to innovation i would want the space not just for office building but for residential we could unleash our population when we think about how to use our buildings that are vacated and zone in simple a way to be a bit important modern of what the creative people want to do. a lot of people are living and working in similar places and tailors not a difference >> let me be more specific about space. tells us exactly where your located right now where are you likely to move to next? >> i know we have a pipe organize manufacturing factory at the
in that process. >> 18 reasons was started almost four years ago as an educational arm of their work. and we would have dinners and a few classes and we understood there what momentum that people wanted this type of engagement and education in a way that allowed for a more in-depth conversation. we grew and now we offer -- i think we had nine, we have a series where adults learned home cooking and we did a teacher training workshop where san francisco unified public school teachers came and learned to use cooking for the core standards. we range all over the place. we really want everyone to feel like they can be included in the conversation. a lot of organizations i think which say we're going to teach cooking or we're going to teach gardening, or we're going to get in the policy side of the food from conversation. we say all of that is connected and we want to provide a place that feels really community oriented where you can be interested in multiple of those things or one of those things and have an entree point to meet people. we want to build community and we're using food as a means to that
youth who are watching our program or who are friends with you. they would envy the kinds of educational experiences that the two of you have. they are probably thinking that, maybe when i get to senior high school or go to college, i may want to have an overseas educational experience whether it is for one year or two years. what would be your word of advice to them if they are thinking of spending a year or so in a different country, in a different academic institution? >> it's a great experience. you do need to live in different environments in order to understand other people more. if you are from taiwan and you go to an english majority speaking environment, you do have that experience of feeling like a minority. it's one i think is necessary in order to develop empathy and understand others, and not just be looking inside only. it is when you have these different kinds of experiences to draw upon that you can connect with different people. that is extremely beneficial. >> and gina, you feel the same way? >> yes, you are just expanding your horizons by traveling abroad. the people t
of the discussion. we've got federal, state and local policy makers, elected officials, educators, law enforcement officials and leaders from the private and public sector, all of whom have traveled here from washington, dc from sacramento and all over the bay area. so thank you for being here today. we are grateful for an opportunity to come together with you to create schools and communities where young people are healthy and safe and feel welcome and they are allowed to learn and they are allowed to thrive. this day is devoted to help all of us deepen our understanding of this issue of the problem through data, through research, through anecdotes, to put real solutions in place, to comply with new state and draw laws on bullying and to measure our progress. it's a promise we want to join you in keeping to our children and our youth in california. some of you know that we started this summit yesterday with a screening of the documentary film, bully, to 3,000 students in san francisco from san francisco's public schools. the superintendent of schools you're going to hear from in a minute, he

justice -- getting education is a social justice issue. we don't want kids to feel they can't go to school or go home. we want other's worth intact and appreciate the worth. justice is a public face of love and 60% of kids who are discipline read likely to drop out of school, so if we attach the same concerns that we have for all of the students and comparing with the evidence base data that suggests there are a lairming rates of suspensions and explullions and how does that push the conversation or do other things that we are innovative with and coming up with real solutions? not just to bullying but all of the social factors that affect students and adults and there are several adults that need training as well. that's my point. >> yeah. actually the work place bullying institute which has good data i am told and found that 35% of american employees say that they have been bullied in the work place. that is about double over the figure for kids so this is not a kid problem, but so are you asking if there should be programs and campaigns aimed at minority students as a diffe
